Denver Federal Criminal Lawyers

The federal justice system is ginormous and intimidating. If you fail to defend against a criminal prosecution by the Feds in Denver, the consequences can be very harsh. The learning curve can be steep for white-collar criminals who have no criminal records. They may not understand the importance of hiring experienced trial counsel and may think that because they are innocent, this is enough. Dragging your feet in the federal criminal process before you hire an attorney is a very bad idea. Proceedings move quickly and leave you with few opportunities to remedy errors if you don’t have skilled counsel on the job at every phase.

Our Denver criminal defense attorneys are some of the most experienced around. This level of experience allows them to make shorter work of cases because they know exactly what to do. They have a working knowledge of all the applicable laws and may only need to carry out some defined research on specific facets of the case. This saves you from paying to educate an attorney and allows you to take advantage of our experience. We know what works and what is not sticking in the courts and even how a particular judge will likely handle claims.

Denver Federal Criminal Lawyers | Defending Against Federal Charges

We handle a wide variety of federal criminal cases: gun violations, drug trafficking, credit card fraud, public office corruption charges, internet sex stings, child pornography cases, murder, rape, human trafficking, identity theft, illegal immigration, and more. We can provide expert assistance at every phase of your case to give you a clear advantage over uncounseled and poorly represented defendants.

Bail Proceedings

The federal authorities have just 72 hours after your arrest to bring you before a magistrate or judge to set bail. We can help you obtain bail in serious cases and reduce the bail in any almost any case by citing mitigations and weaknesses in the prosecution’s theory from the door. Retaining your dignity and psychological well-being during this phase of the case by staying out of prison is of paramount importance.

Early Dismissals

If the case against your is weak, it may even be lacking in probable cause. Sometimes, federal officials will try to play things by ear while initiating a case against a suspect even though the probable cause is lacking. They may expect evidence to come out later that will justify the arrest. The prosecutor will be required to demonstrate probable cause at a hearing within just 10 days of your arrest. For this reason, you need counsel on the case immediately to eliminate the presumptions of your involvement in a crime. Merely being seen at the scene of a crime or being seen in possession of what could be illegal drugs, without more, is not sufficient for a prosecution.

Discovery and Pre-Trial Motion Practice

The Discovery phase of a case is critical. During Discovery, the prosecutor is obligated to hand over any evidence in their possession that they plan to use at trial. They are not allowed to surprise defendants with new witnesses or evidence. The rule is the same in even civil trial. Yet, many prosecutors will intentionally withhold key evidence such as recordings, statements, and other information that may support your innocence in the aggregate. We can spot areas where holes exist in their disclosure and force them to give up the evidence or, otherwise, preserve the issues for appeals.

We will also file motions to suppress evidence that is inflammatory, digressive, unreliable hearsay, or unlawfully obtained. This ensures the fairness of the trial and prevents the prosecutor from substituting evidence of the crime with irrelevant factors that slander your character or confuse a jury. Doing all this pre-trial work preserves issues for appeals and forces the prosecutor to consider dismissing the case or providing a more lenient plea bargain at the risk of blowing trial in the alternative.

Plea, Trial, Sentencing Phase

If your case is strong and you’ve won on your pre-trial motions to ensure fairness, you may want to go to trial. If the plea is very good, you may decide to forgo the risks of trial. In any case, we will work hard to bring up any mitigations at the sentencing phase if you are ultimately convicted or plead out. And we will file post-trial motions to preserve objections at trial and other errors. Trust us to manage your case for an optimal outcome.

Why the Smallest Details Matter in Denver Federal Appeal Cases

When you file a Denver federal appeal, it’s important to hire a competentDenver Federal Appeals Lawyers with experience in the federal appeals process. The appeal process is highly structured, and even the smallest error in strategy or stating the facts can generate enormous repercussions.

The Rules and Technical Requirements of Denver Federal Appeals

The reasons why it’s important to hire an experienced Denver Federal Appeals Lawyer is that appellate courts have very strict technical requirements. These include:

  • Notice of Appeal
    A “Notice of Appeal” must be filed within 10 days of a federal judgment. In almost every case, the defendant’s attorney should have objected to the conditions that are grounds for the appeal in the original trial.
  • Time Limits
    The appeal itself must be filed within 30 days of the date of the judgment. Contributors to the appeal have 14 days from the date that the appeal is filed to file their briefs. The opposing legal team has 30 days to respond to the appeal after being informed that it needs to respond.
  • Drafting Guidelines
    The documents must be prepared according to a precise template that defines the number of pages, font size and spacing. Using the wrong color cover or type of binding for the documents could result in them being sent back.
  • Small Errors Make Big Problems
    Even the smallest error in a brief is critical when judges rely on the information to set precedents that can change the law.

The technical details of a federal appeal might seem incredibly conservative and picky to defendants who are not lawyers. However, following the rules demonstrates respect for the judges and their time. Following the rules gains the respect of the judges and court staff, which is a critical advantage. The staff members and court clerks have a lot of power over the appeals process.

Successful Denver Federal Appeals Require Workmanship

During the Denver Federal appeals, you petition the court to set aside a verdict because of a legal impropriety. These might be small errors that didn’t affect the verdict, but they could have done so. That’s why judges overturn decisions based on violations of procedure or the defendant’s rights. When you’re asking the court to uphold the highest standards of integrity, your Denver Federal Appeals lawyers are duty-bound to exercise the same standard of care in your appeal.

Tips to Avoid Common Mistakes | Denver Federal Appeals Lawyers

Knowing what to expect and focusing on the procedural and factual details are critical for a successful appeal. For example, clerks and judges get upset when briefs contain block citations instead of citations that specify page numbers and even the appropriate line number. Making things easier on the judges and staff just makes good sense. Other tips for appeals include:

  • Don’t Raise New Issues on Appeal
    It’s a common strategy to raise new issues when they become obvious during an appeal case. However, it’s a mistake to bring up new issues that weren’t presented in the brief even if they’re relevant to the case. Examples of this error include bringing up inappropriate jury instructions that were never mentioned during the trial. All issues to be considered need to be mentioned in the original brief.
  • Don’t Depend on Oral Arguments to Make Your Case
    Most appeals are adjudicated without oral arguments, so it’s a mistake to rely on them. Over-the-top courtroom revelations just don’t happen. Rousing oral arguments are likely to annoy the judges who don’t want to be lectured in the way that some attorneys lecture juries.
  • Don’t Underestimate the Costs of an Appeal
    You have to be realistic about the high costs of appeals. appeals require expert Denver Federal Appeals Lawyers and sufficient resources to fund the appeal, and you can’t hope to succeed when hiring the lowest bidder or an inexperienced Denver Federal appeals Lawyers.

Appellate success depends on your legal team’s ability to shepherd your case through a complex series of hurdles.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
